Students like Risa from Japan recently completed her certificate and became a master of her craft in making that perfect espresso and the frothiest cappuccino.  It has also given her the opportunity and the confidence to apply for jobs in the hospitality field but in particular as a Barista and then successfully landing her ideal job at her local café.

In Risa’s words, I got a job as a Barista at a café in Woolloongabba (Brisbane) called Felix Green. I’m having productive days and but also, I’m still learning about all coffee things in a real life.

My workplace is so good to use what I have learned at BROWNS.  I am improving every day not just my skills at making coffee but also my English skills. My teachers at BROWNS are very patient, supportive, and they helped me make the best coffees.

Thank you for everything, I am so glad to be at BROWNS.  For me, it was a great place to study, make new friends and studying barista was a fun experience that has helped me be more confident here in Australia.”
